It looks really old, and rough and aged. It's really nice IMO.

Too bad they're around $3500 USD for the typical model


Which is the price you would expect to pay for an instrument which is truly handmade by one reputable artisan who builds 12-15 guitars every year by himself.

However his prices also include shipping expenses and start at $2700

That guitar looks and sounds ****ing amazing. I might get an 8 string at some point. See how i feel at the time though...

Must say that I played one a few months ago (the ibanez one, I'm afraid) and the massive neck (used to 6 stringers lawl) was way more comfortable than I expected.

Holy shit! That is truly badass. Another kid at my school is building an 8 string to play some Meshuggah tunes.

I'm used to playing the 5 string bass so i think i should be just about okay handling an 8 string guitar.

I saw your thread where you were molding those pickup shapes on project guitar. Very nice work.
